Philbeck Frenzy

I went to the opening of the Feast of Pots exhibition on sunday afternoon, a very pleasant way to spend a cold damp sunday afternoon. Met a friend of mine walking down the road to the gallery who said she had come specifically to buy a Ron Philbeck washing line plate. I told her she’d have to fight me for it but thankfully Ron had sent two so we didn’t need to start a punch up in the gallery. As we were looking though and ooohing and ahhing we drew a crowd who got well into the swing and within minutes all bar a couple had been sold. Good work Ron!

I’ve been spending a lot of time sgraffitoing this big jug, I’m loving it but blimey it does take some time.
Mermaid with a lovely body but she could do with some surgery n the face I think. Oops.

  1. Oh no, have I missed all the Philbecx? Bother, I should have asked you to reserve a washing line for me! I hope the show went well for you too. Oh, and I love the mermaid on the jug.

    That was exactly my thought about the mermaid bless her. I know it's not a very feminist view and some people would say I'm wrong to say it but yes pretty face isn't the first thing that comes to mind when you think mermaid is it?!
